    Can anyone tell me if his book or dvd's has a section on how to rewire the featherweight motor?
    Is there a "how to" tutorial that anyone has come across?
    Thanks so much.

    I will look and let you know!

    ETA: He has a small section on how to remove the motor, to prepare the FW for painting, and he has a clear diagram of a "wire schematic" (whatever that is) showing which wires attach where, but no tutorial on re-wiring it. I recommend his book for any FW or 301 owner. It has lots of helpful information in it.

    There is a featherweight yahoo group. They have some files with helpful info. We found the wiring for the foot pedal there. Not sure if there is one for the motor.
